My first thought upon seeing this advertising campaign for Coca Colas new product Coke Life was: Oh Please. Excuse me if I’ve become a tad cynical where multinational beverage corporations are concerned. Coke Life is aimed at those folks, like me, who would only drink this shit if it wasn’t made with GMO High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is why Mexican Coke (still just made with sugar) has become such a fetish item here in NYC.
Coke has gone one step further by reducing the amount of sugar and adding Stevia to give it a patina of: it’s even good for you!
Here is what they say: At 60 calories per 8-oz. glass bottle, The Coca-Cola Company’s first reduced-calorie sparkling beverage sweetened with cane sugar and stevia leaf extract has 35 percent fewer calories than other leading colas**.
And the label is green so you know it has to be good for you.
What do you think? Anyone tried it?
